Building Worlds with Words with Suzy Vadori
Building Believable Worlds is key in both creative writing and non-fiction to immersing your reader. In this interactive course, we’ll travel to places in this world and beyond to explore what makes a well-rounded setting, including habitat, language, traditions, currency and political systems. We’ll experiment with including these elements in fiction, as well as essay writing, newspaper articles and more.

Writer’s Workshop with Debbie Schotanus

This program is based on the idea that students learn to write best when they write frequently, for extended periods of time, and on topics of their own choosing. To develop skills, they require ownership of their writing, guidance from an experienced writer, and support from a community of fellow writers. Writer’s Workshop will include mini-lessons on punctuation, grammar, spelling and style, writing/conferring time, and sharing 2-3 “published” pieces.

Headline News with Simon Rose

Take a look at journalism and discover just what exactly goes into creating
a newspaper. Just as the plot of a novel has a beginning, middle, and end, a news story has a headline, lead, body, and conclusion. Participants create examples of newspaper writing, such as news stories, attention-grabbing headlines, advertising, book and movie reviews, articles on topics such as celebrity gossip, entertainment news, fashion, sports, lifestyle, recipes, real estate, and more.
